Discover Norway on a tailor-made, luxury holiday from Best Served Scandinavia. This is a spectacular travel destination of stirring landscapes on a grand scale – from high coastal cliffs and steep-sided fjords to snowy peaks, forested hills, glaciers and Arctic tundra. See itinerary ideas
Its wild interior is approached via the vibrant capital city, Oslo, with a thriving café scene and loads of Scandi street style. This charming, laid-back hub is the perfect place for a city break, or just a welcoming introduction to the country before you set off on an adventure holiday. Fuel up with Norway's signature cuisine, from freshwater fish caught in the fjords to stockfish, a staple of the Norwegian diet. There are also meatballs served alongside lingonberries and gravy, dense, sweet rye bread and crisp akevitt, a clear and potent liquor made from potatoes.
But Oslo isn't the country's only city, and a holiday in Norway can range much farther. Take your tour to the antique cathedral city of Trondheim in central Norway, or subarctic Tromso, one of the best places to view the Northern Lights, or the port city of Bergen, gateway to the western fjords.
Outdoor activities for active travellers range from summer hikes, cycling, sea kayaking and white-water rafting to winter skiing, dog-sledding and snowmobiling. Combine these with year-round wildlife watching, and you have a luxurious escape from day to day life. At Best Served, we offer a range of adventure holidays throughout Norway, including fjord cruises and rail journeys that take you through the winding, steep terrain of the country's mountain ranges.
The fjordside villages of Balestrand, Lofthus, Loen, Flåm, Ulvik and Mundal each have a splendid network of cairned walks over hills and valleys, while more adventurous trails can be followed in the vast national parks of Hardangervidda, Rondane and Jotunheimen. Lose yourself in this scenic environment, and recharge with clear air and a dynamic landscape unchanged by the centuries.
The gentler terrain and climate of Arendal and Mandal in Norway's south offer welcoming ports and sandy beaches, while winter travellers can enjoy alpine skiing and snowboarding at Geilo or Holmenkollen within striking distance from the capital, or venture into the Arctic Circle to Lofoten or Svalbard for glacier and wildlife tours and cruises.
Our custom Norway holidays linger long in the memory once you've visited, and we think it's safe to say you won't visit here just once. Get in touch with a tailor-made travel specialist today to begin planning your trip.
